Did you know 25% to 50% of deployed device failures are due to
software defects? This statistic should be nowhere near this high,
considering there are a few very good solutions out there today to help
reduce the number of defects in software code.
In the networking and telecom industry, if equipment fails and brings down the
network it can cost a service provider or operator millions of dollars
in lost revenue or even lost customers (read this white paper to learn more).
If you are an equipment provider and the failure is associated with
your application, the lost revenue cost could very well be passed on to
you. And count on the network failure to be all over the headline
news like the one that hit the New York Times.
